As a fellow at the Harvard Kennedy School Government Performance Lab, she conducted criminal justice research and led a project within the Illinois Department of Corrections to identify opportunities to improve individuals’ re-integration into communities. Carla has also worked as an analyst in immigration policy at the Library of Congress’s Congressional Research Service, where she advised members of Congress and their staff on immigration matters, maintained relationships with the Department of Homeland Security, and completed a site visit to the McAllen, Texas border patrol station.
Her extensive background in community organizing, policy, and research made her the ideal choice to head Ichor’s Chicago office. She is fluent in Spanish.
